Every Wednesday evening (9:00 p.m. est/8:00 p.m. cst) Designs in Digital has a speed scrap. It's a great way to get a layout done, and chat with other scrappers. Anyone can stop by and join in! If you don't feel like chatting, you can also do the speed scrap by following along in the forum, and then just post your layout to the Designs in Digital Gallery. The speed scraps usually last about an hour and everyone is very nice! You'll have a great time!
If you've never been, you just show up, maybe have a few photos and some layout supplies ready and your photo editing program open. About every 10-15 minutes, the host will post a set of instructions for your layout. There's usually around seven total instructions, and by the time it's over you'll have a layout done. If you don't get it done right away, no problem, the Designs in Digital Speed Scraps have a deadline of noon est the next day - that takes some of the pressure off!
This week, Sugar Moon Designs in hosting - and of course there's going to be prizes!!! I hope you can come and follow along with us.
Here's a little preview of the prize that's going to be given away! A new mini kit from Sugar Moon Designs. You'll have to come by and play if you want your own!
Here's a couple of layouts I've already done with it:
So, make sure to stop by and have some fun!!!
Here's a cute game for a Halloween party. I found it over at Martha Stewart. Don't get me started on Martha's Halloween stuff! Anyway - this looks like a blast - it reminds me of those old fashioned carnival games. There is a tutorial if you want to make one. You could also fill the balloons with confetti and small candies and include a paper with a number written on it. Whatever number the child gets in a balloon would correspond with a "Trick," (something they have to do, i.e., tell a riddle, do a cartwheel) or a "Treat," some kind of party prize. I think kids would love this game - I know I would! You could also make the balloons into the shape of a skull, using black and white balloons - I'm sure you can think of other things too!
Here's a few ideas I've seen around the web for updating your decor for fall.
The first ones are from Mad In Crafts - she has a fantastic tutorial for making these. (and a good warning - don't burn the fake leaves!!) She has lots more easy and lovely ideas on her blog, so check all of them out!
She shows you how to get a similar look from Pottery Barn inspired decor - so easy to do, and it looks so nice and would be a wonderful centerpiece! I just love all the things she does with leaves!
This next one would actually be awesome for Thanksgiving - or any harvest party! Jelly Bean Indian Corn! The tutorial to make it can be found at Kelley Highway. Wouldn't these be so awesome as party favors - or even tuck a card into each one and use them as a name card holder! I am so planning to make these for Thanksgiving!
Sure, I know you think we're going to discuss green fuzzy mold - how you can grow it, how it can be used in your next haunted house . . . and that really sounds like fun, but today I'm going to show you some different, yet just as awesome molds for food!
First, I saw this cake on Not Martha. OMG really! Isn't this just the coolest? I mean this is the kind of cake that could be made year round! When ISN"T a skull cake appropriate? Birthdays! Family Reunions! Mother's Day! Okay, well that might depend on if your mother is closer to Morticia or Mrs. Cleaver. But anyway, she has a tutorial for this lovely orange cake, which got me to searching, and look at all these adorable molds I found on Amazon! Who Knew!? Not me obviously.
This pan, from Wilton, is the one that Not Martha used to make her 3-D skull cake - there are just so many decorating possibilities too! A day of the dead decorated skull would look fantastic!
I also discovered this pan, which appears to be a more traditional cake pan - one that would lie flat - still it would be awesome!
I also discovered these little skulls! How cute is this!
And here's one for skull cupcakes. Awww CUPCAKES!
Then I also saw that they have skull ice cube molds - I think these are awesome too!
Lastly I found a few other molds, not skulls, but still Halloween related - first some bony fingers!!!
and lastly, some harmless little pumpkins . . . or are they . . . guess that would be up to YOU to decide!!
I figure if the NFL can have preseason games, why can't I have pre-season Halloween! So when I find cool stuff, I'll pass it along as we get ready for the big October Countdown!!!
First, I saw this cute little Halloween Countdown Calendar - it wouldn't be too hard to make - and it would be a fun way to keep track of the days - especially for little kids, I think these countdown calendars help them get the concept of days and time. Or heck it's just a fun thing to do and an excuse to eat candy!
Over at Oopsey Daisy, she has a tutorial to make one of these calendars, and she also has free printables to help you make it!
